Peripheral Neuropathy

How Can We Help?

Millions of people each year in the USA are affected by a painful affliction known as peripheral neuropathy. This condition occurs when the nerves that carry messages from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body are damaged or diseased.

Peripheral nerves begin in the spinal cord and radiate out along lines in the body which are commonly known as dermatomes. When one of these nerves becomes diseased or damaged, it can have an affect one or more dermatomes, causing pain to then flow out to other parts of the body.

This form of nerve damage can disrupt communication between the brain and other parts of the body. It also can hinder movement of muscles, make arms and legs feel abnormal, and occasionally cause strong pains in the body.

Peripheral Neuropathy Causes

People develop peripheral neuropathy for a multitude of reasons. It can originate because of diabetes, poor diet, disease, or infection. It also can be hereditary, although this happens less frequently.

In certain instances, the original cause of the affliction is never determined. This is referred to as idiopathic neuropathy and as many as 1/3rd of all people in Central Florida with peripheral neuropathy fall into this category.

Peripheral Neuropathy Treatments

Depending on the severity and type of peripheral neuropathy you have will have an impact on your treatment. Anti-seizure medications work for certain patients, while others have benefited from antidepressants.

Capsaicin cream can also be used to provide some level of improvement in peripheral neuropathy symptoms.
